I develop websites on my laptop and have recently upgraded to Windows 7 Enterprise. I need to get IIS and WWW services running so I can test sites locally using http://localhost/websitename
After installing IIS I attempted to open a test site but IE8 did not show anything. I checked services and found the WWW service not running. After attempting to start it I receive and error:
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start. (see attached)
It looks like the dependent service not started is DCOM Server Process Launcher and Windows Process Activation Service. However when I look in services I don't see the DCOM service listed at all. Also, when attempting to start the Windows Process Activation Service I receive an error (see attached).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
